I fear our only choice may be to rekindle the patriots dream- like the boston tea party (a protest against excessive taxation without representation) if things like the fairness doctrine, pieces of pie being taken away from those who paid for it and given to those that didn't and making world opinion a higher priority than our own children.

What parts of the manifesto you accused me of not reading did you like the best? The part where one of the main goals was to redistribute the population and illiminate the diversity between town and country or the parts about the elimination of the nuclear family, or was it the elimination of inheritance (of which I did not get any, but I am not complaining)? I don't make $250k a year but would never want to force someone who does to pay someone who doesn't even pay income taxes. That doesn't bother you? Now that is an honest question and you can yell haliburton and palins wardrobe and think biden not answering questions is healthy for democracy like ed shultz storming off stage when confronted. Go ahead, call me hitler now.

>>>I fear our only choice may be to rekindle the patriots dream- like the boston tea party (a protest against excessive taxation without representation) if things like the fairness doctrine, >>>

If you know anything about economics, you'd realizes that the assumptions of nonpublic goods, perfect information, and perfect rationality are all problems not yet solved by the Nobel winners. You might have also heard something about monopoly and oligopoly -- some industries naturally require regulation because they are too important to the public good.

If we could trust people not to externalize costa and rip the public off that would be great. But the Republican revolution has again proven the criticisms of the attempts at unregulated capitalism.


>>>What parts of the manifesto you accused me of not reading did you like the best? >>>

If you're talking about the communist manifesto, well nice try but it too is outdated and intellectually-limited ideology.


>>>I don't make $250k a year but would never want to force someone who does to pay someone who doesn't even pay income taxes. That doesn't bother you? >>>

No. The problem with your perspective is that you don't seem to realize or acknowledge that our system is riddled with preferences and kickbacks, which the rich benefit from the most.

A study done within the DOE in the 80's found that oil, gas, coal, nuke, and electrical industries had received massive subsidies, which have continued, while renewables and conservation were starved. If the Reaganites were interested in a level playing field they wouldn't have pushed pet projects in uneconomic ways.

The same goes for subsidies to corn, soy and big ag. Farmers aren't encouraged to grow veggies and are even penalized for it.

I'd be for a limited flat tax (akin to Islamic law!) if there were no exceptions for corporations. Similarly, the death penalty is now very unwise since the justice system is so broken. California spends about $10 bill/yr despite a $7B deficit.
